in foreign and security policy. we want to thank the senator center for the national interest where we are today, for having us all here for an opportunity to examine this very timely and very important issue that is before us today as we are seeing an evolution today in american foreign policy. before we begin, the entire room is full of very distinguished persons. that's why you're invited and why you're here, why you're here. we're delighted that you are. i do want to recognize two people. i wish to recognize general brent scowcroft, who is here, former national security visor and also paula dobronski, former undersecretary of state who is here as well. frankly there are other distinguished persons in government and private affairs throughout the room. you will forgive me for not recognizing everyone. i will open for about five minutes or so and then turn this over to this distinguished panel. each of whom will present for about 10 minutes and then there will be plenty of time afterwards for commentary and q&a from the audience and an opportunity for your comments, questions and ans
and information about united states foreign policy, the purpose of the surrogate broadcast such as radio free europe, radio free asia is very different. and that is to beam this information into closed societies giving those citizens the information that otherwise they would never be able to access. each broadcasting service is full of enterprising reporters who literally risk their lives for what they do. they risk life and limb, and i think all of us have followed stories about individual reporters who were killed in the line of getting the story in totalitarian regimes or reporting on human rights abuses. reporters from these services really deserve to work under an organization that makes the most out of their talents. unfortunately, more and more it seems that the structure of international broadcasting clips their wings. legislation in the 1990s established the broadcasting board of governors as an independent federal agency responsible for all u.s. nonmilitary international broadcasting. today the bbg exercises authority over five distinct broadcasting services managed by a bipartisan

government should the concerned from a foreign-policy give, -- respect it if but we should not be surprised. africa was used as a proxy. we really tried to play africa against it self because of our issues, because of the cold war with the soviet union. african people are very typical of the u.s. role on the continent. here you have china come in. china is not going to talk about human rights. not going to say, you are on our side must so we think you are the good guys or we think you are the bad guys. they want resources am a and they are willing to give up his for resources. the same time, many government officials and ngo officials say at least it is a cleaner deal. at least we understand what is happening with china. >> if there is a waords understood over and over again, it is the word heart ownership. .- the word partnership he we really see africa as a partner, or are we treating them as less than? >> when it comes to our business partnerships, some of those deals are not fair, and that was something he was beginning to when we were in and a golf. -- he was speaking to when we were i
leverages technology to foreign policy. so i found it interesting that obamacare campaign hired 300 data analysts to look at the messenger, the policy, what platform. if you look at the state department for the national security counsel, i think there is a zero or a handful of data analysts. so does it look like our ambassadors are like campaign managers for the dash board saying it's a policy, this is messenger. this the platform that we should use? could you go beyond social media and sort of share your thought on leverage data to form foreign policy? >> the current problem is still that -- the good news is the foreign policy apparatus or the importance of technology. the problem is we still view in foreign policy technology through the lens of public diplomacy and communicating. i'm not touting the importance of public diplomacy and communicating. that's one instrument of stay craft. the bigger sort of role of the technology can play is in how it empowers local entity and individuals who address local challenges. there's a huge role in the technology can play around analyzing and corr

in contrast to presidents clinton and bush that had elevated africa within the foreign policy hierarchy and really had put their stamp, left a mark on u.s. foreign policy that's lasted, you know, up till today. we don't yet see that kind of legacy coming from president obama. and i think it's particularly ironic at this time, as africa is doing better than ever before, and africa is more important to the united states than ever before, we're seeing the white house step back from africa and playing a much less-active role. >> warner: sarah pray, do you find it disappointing? and do you hear from the people on the continent that they're disappointed? >> well, i think this trip is perhaps past due, but if nothing else, it's due. it's time. and i think the fact that he has devoted such a significant period of time to this trip, visiting three countries and really prioritizing economic growth and democracy as the two pillars of this trip, i think that's very welcome on the continent. i think-- you mentioned some of the omissions that, the places he will not visit. that clearly has raised qui

it is that this anti-morsi sentiment is also anti-obama? >> reporter: it's no secret that u.s. foreign policy is not popular, throughout the arab world. egyptians love americans, but they don't love u.s. foreign policy. remember, they will never forget that for decades, it was washington that supported the dictator hosni mubarak in his bruceal police state. they believe washington had never been out for the people. then came standpoint mohammed morsi, the islamic president, washington supported him. that's why you're seeing many in this crowd criticizing washington for that support. earlier today, the leaders of the campaign, this rebel campaign with this petition drive, with a hard statement aimed at washington, suggesting that washington should stay out of the egypt's affairs, accusing washington of trying to impose its will on egypt for the interest of israel. some harsh words, and a glimpse of how complicated washington has it. >> reza, what kind of military presents dodds there? with these demonstrators? are they out in force? or playing a more of a behind the scenes role? >> not where w
